PageOne to supply paging services to the public sector via new Network Services framework
PageOne Communications has been appointed by the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) to provide paging and messaging services through the new Network Services framework agreement (RM1045).
The new agreement enables organisations to bid to supply a range of technology services to the public sector. CCS estimates that spend through the agreement will be a minimum of £318m over the next four financial years.
Having been selected on to the framework, PageOne – part of Capita plc – will be able to supply public sector organisations with a range of one-way and two-way paging and mobile messaging services on a direct-award call-off basis.
Nigel Gray, director at PageOne, said: “After being subjected to a rigorous tender process by the Crown Commercial Service we are absolutely delighted that the security and resilience of our messaging portfolio successfully meets the needs of the government agenda.
“This is a significant contract for PageOne as it illustrates our commitment to providing cost-effective products and services which support the growing demands of this key market sector.”
The agreement is designed to replace the Public Sector Telecommunication Services (PSTS), Public Services Network Connectivity (PSNC) and Public Services Network Services (PSNS) frameworks. More information can be found on the CCS website.
